cain and then candidate george w. bush had thousands of people in front of the philadelphia art museum, latino voters turning out in droves to vote for this republican ticket. fast-forward to today. where are the republicans in locking down that latino vote, and what do you see there? >> tom, they're crucial in three battleground states. nevada, colorado, and florida. there's a large puerto rican population have moved to florida, the i-94 area. right now the president is leading, i thought it was mas print. an astounding 45 points. mitt romney is at 25%, the president is at 70% amongst latinos. john mccain did about 35 or 34. but this is the margin of difference, and many people feel that this emerging population group is key to president obama keeping the presidency. >> thanks a lot, mark. brian, when you look at where these vote totals are, places like florida, places in nevada, that's where the latino vote is going to come in. >> senator john mccain, the nominee in 2008, joins us live from boca raton, florida. sen to great to see you as always. you have the unique perspective of having debated bot
election the latino vote out there in nevada. the stat tistics from boomberg news shows nevada has the largest shift since 2008. latinos cast 15% of the ballot in 2008 and three quarters voted for obama in 2008. talk about how that is impacting the election now. >> there is a huge push to turn more voters out to the polls. to play up all of the rostered issues that seem to matter the most. it's a very large population in the state, it's about 20% of the population is latino organize gin and that goes up in clark county which is where lave is which is the main population of the state. this voting block cares a lot about the economy, a lot about education and immigration disease not rank as the highest issue of interest to these voters but it becomes an issue that is an underlying across the board, are you saying the right thing on this pop sick and it could be 2/3 one these voters are split on that. this is an issue candidates on both sides have been fighting about because obama made a promise to address it his first year in office and did not do that. he said he did not have time a
but it's real. why white men versus latinos matters in this it election. first read asking the question which group is more important in the election. look at the latest numbers out of ohio and pennsylvania, two key states. i don't have to tell you that. a check on the latest battleground polls in pennsylvania. president obama leads governor romney 50/45, in ohio a quinnipiac poll shows the same number, president obama up by 5 leading into the big night of the debate. humans -- even when we cross our t's and dot our i's, we still run into problems. namely, other humans. which is why, at liberty mutual insurance, auto policies come with new car replacement and accident forgiveness if you qualify. see what else comes standard at libertymutual.com. liberty mutual insurance. responsibility. what's your policy? every room deserves to look us what our great.te color is? and every footstep should tell us we made the right decision. so when we can feel our way through the newest, softest, and most colorful options... ...across every possible price range... ...our budgets won't be picking the st
people, latinos, african-american, the president has to talk about his record, talk about things he has done, show that he understands their issues and their concerns. be it unemployment, student loans, whatever. or immigration. and then he has to talk about what he has done, what he'll do in the next four years and contrast that with mitt romney's stance. for latinos, for example, i think latinos would be interested to hear the president's version of the dream act he implemented, which is an important issue, versus mitt romney's policy of self-deportation. >> of 11 million people. >> that's a ludicrous claim he's going to do it. it's an insult. anyway, president obama swamps mitt romney among young voters, 18 to 34 age group but they're less enthusiastic this time around. now 52% of young voters call themselves extremely interested in the electric. back in 2008 that number was 20 points higher. and in an effort to fire up young voters, the president has been on a college tour of u.s. campuses. this last week he was at ohio state. let's listen. >> grab your friends, grab everybody in yo
, the latino community." a direct quote from the president in that interview. meanwhile, republican challenger mitt romney is facing another distraction in the interview of abortion rights for women. cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta is with the romney campaign in reno, nevada. >> reporter: in what's now a horse race to the finish, mitt romney was rounding up votes in nevada and trying to stay on message on the economy. >> the president doesn't understand what it takes to get this economy going. he doesn't have a plan to get jobs for americans. i do. and that's why i'm going to win. >> reporter: romney's in the midst of a swing state blitz flying from colorado to nevada to iowa to ohio then back to iowa, back to ohio and then onto florida and virginia. >> this is that issue that every candidate for federal or state office -- >> reporter: but a new distraction cropped up where richard mourdock made jaws drop with his comments on why abortion should be outlawed in the case of rape. >> i came to realize life is that gift from god. and i think even when life begins in that horrible
strong of "roll call". >>> and president obama is showed with an overwhelming lead with the latino voters, in fact, 78% say they would vote for him if it was held today. the state only has six electoral votes, but 76% of people identifying as latino, it could be a window into the november results. joining me is john ralston, host of "ralston reports." so that is a big number, what do you think of president obama's support among the latino voters. >> well, i think there are a couple of things going on, the exit polls in nevada showed that barack obama won, but i think mitt romney got himself in trouble with the latino community with the positions he took running to the right in that primary. and now, that is hurting him here in nevada. also, you have to -- realize that the democrats here, especially the culinary union, which is heavily hispanic, has been registering voters at a remarkable clip the last couple of months. and while it is hard for me to believe the margin is that big, alex, it is pretty big. >> hey, john, are nevada's latino voters unique in some sort of way, that we can't ta
this election. guest: 26% of the state is latino. this voting block has been shown to hear a lot about the economy, a lot about education. immigration does not rank as the highest this year of interest to these voters. it is an underlying across the board thing. are you saying the right thing on these topics. it is 2/3 versus 1/3 that the voters are split on this. this is what candidates are fighting about. obama made a promise to address it in his first year in office and did not do that. he said he did not have time and did not have a cooperative congress. that has not stopped republicans who say, we can bring a comprehensive immigration reform, which is a term both parties defined differently. they are trying to make that a sales pitch. if you turn on spanish radio, you hear nonstop commercials from both sides. this is a swing state for the president and it is also a swing state for the senate and one of the congressional races on here as well. host: if we are talking with karoun demirjian from the washington son. you can call in on the republican line. we have a special line set up
the middle of the road or the latino voters? >> geraldo, i think it will be important for him to talk about immigration reform and have a balanced approach of cutting down the time that we have for applications and people coming to the united states legally. i think he has to make sure he is enforcing the laws and as you know the big issue for virginians are going to be the defense cuts and i think that is what governor romney is going to sell and i think that is ultimately what is going to help him win the commonwealth of virginia. >> geraldo: what about the latino vote, though, congressman? i underand it that defense is a huge, huge issue in the commonwealth where there is so many defense facilities. but there are substantial number of latinos there, particularly around the disdistrict of columbia. if he talks tough, first of alllet me ask you this. i withdraw that statement. the governor said he will not repeal president obama's temporary dream act measure where he gave a pass, a two year visa to those students you know story who were brought here as children. do you regret that governor
in a more aggressive way. >> i want to ask you about the enthusiasm gap particularly among latino voters. we see in our polling while the president has a huge edge in the latino vote, there's a real drop-off since 2008 when then it was 77% enthusiasm, now it is 59% in terms of hispanic americans. what you going to do to make sure people turn out? >> nare sending me all over the country. i'll be at jefferson-jackson dinner in iowa, i've been it to florida. we have surrogates all across the country. we have a grassroots campaign that has been talked about as the most aggressive, the most focused on social media and on a broad cross-section of speaking to voters. we're going to knock on doors and talk to voters, and we're going to get that vote out. i agree that our work is cut out for us. it's cut out for them, too. that's what elections are all about. >> thank you very much, mr. mayor. i know you're out there at the campaign event where the president is going to be speaking later. you just gave your speech, and thanks for joining us today. >> thank you, andrea. sorry we were a little late, bu
of the sample. president obama was on the west coast today courting latinos, and he gave some remarks about the state of the economy and how it affects latinos. >> no matter who you are and what you look like or where you come from, this is the place where you can make it if you try. today we have more work to do to fulfill that promise. the recession we're fighting our way back from is still taking a toll, but thanks to the strength and character of american people, we are making progress. >> now, of course, latinos are one of the reasons president obama has been doing well in some of the western states like colorado, nevada, new mexico, as well as florida. we now have to see gin the smift in polls whether he can continue to remain on top and it sets up the vice presidential debate on thursday between paul ryan and vice president joe biden, larry. >> all right. i'm looking for some rock 'n roll in that debate, john. >> you'll get it. >> many thanks to john harwood. let's get right to the distinguished panel. former assistant secretary of defense larry corps who worked in the reagan adminis
in the stand and say people are voting for barack obama because he's black. or he has the latino vote because he's minority. >> cenk: that's also interesting. maybe the idea is, look, you couldn't possibly vote for obama if you cared about policies or issues or results. only people who vote for him are blacks and latinos who are doing it based on race. maybe that's the dog whistle they want to send out there. there is one other thing i want to talk about. steve wynn owns a lot of casinos including the wynn in vegas. they've put out a pamphlet, a 67-page pamphlet in how to vote. it says the prefer candidates support policies that promote a friendly business and living environments to wynn resorts our approximately 12,000 employees and gaming industry as a whole. they're in nevada, which is a swing state. that's a wink, wink, nod, nod, vote our way or we might fire you. they didn't say who to vote for on the presidential ticket, but i don't know if you could figure it out in this report watch. >> i created 250,000 direct and indirect jobs. that's exactly--the number is 250,000. that's 250,000 m
from latino civil rights leader caesar chavez. the president and national latino leaders dedicated a new national monument for chavez today. we have a flurry of new tv ads to dissect. we're going to get to at least a couple we hope. first one, let me ask you, michelle, the romney campaign released a new tved a with a liar argument. here is a part of it. >> president obama continues to distort mitt romney's plan. the latest not telling the truth about the tax plan. even the obama campaign admitted it wasn't true. >> jennifer: actually i'm going to ask this one of karl, because the romney campaign isn't telling anybody whether the ad is running. >> i think it's disenginous and ironic that they would release an ad calls lying, and not tell anybody where it is returning. if you want to give 20% tax cuts to every american that is $5 trillion. what is difficult is to get really detailed on romney's plans when they are not laid out specifically. so what you find from the fact checkers is that they are not being completely accurate but they always put in there the discl
latinoamÉrica fue el gran ausente desgraciadamente. ¿como ganar el voto latino? hablando de esta relaciÓn especial que tiene estados unidos con amÉrica latina si llegamos ade beato estos debates que ni siquiera se menciona. desde luego no ocurriÓ. >>> mencionas conexiÓn, y hablando de poquito creo que hay una conexiÓn muy importante particularmente cuando obama pasa del tema de israel a septiembre 11 y lo termina hab and de un testimonio de u muchacha que perdiÓ a su padre en el ataque de las elecciones gemelas y obama partiÓ agresivo. y poco a poco fue entrando y tuvieron un buen desempeÑo. recordando en particular. en el instante que obama habla de este testimonio, esta anÉcdota que logra esta conexiÓn emocional. y en univisiÓn candidato q que no toca coracones no gana elecciones, lo tuvo en cuenta. >>> >>> se encuentra restrepo. y la casa blanca para amÉrica latina. y durante muchos aÑos. y varias veces, me hubiera sorprendido y de pronto llegamos a este debate y parece que si estados unidos, tuviera que dibujar un mapa. prÁcticamente no existirÍa. ¿que pasÓ? >>> la dec
of figures suggest, in 1996, u t austin continued to use race in admissions and had a black and latino representation along the line of 18% combined. in the next year, 1997, university of texas was banned from using race by a lower court decision. they saw a decline in racial and ethnic diversity using socio-economic status alone in their admissions process. but by 2004, using socio- economic considerations in admissions and what is known as the top 10% plan, where students to graduate in the top 10% of their high school is automatically admitted, you see racial and ethnic diversity, black and latino representation actually increases above what texas had achieved in 1996. now, we are very clear in the report that part of the reason that there are greater levels of racial and ethnic diversity into a dozen for is that the latino population growth in texas during that time period. as a policy matter, i think it is fair to say that texas ought to be pursuing other race- neutral methods of increasing racial and ethnic diversity so that it more closely mirrors the state's population. as a le
a long time to get them back. >> how about the latino vote? governor romney is losing it by a wide margin. >> another one. comments like the 47% hit. i know he has now defined as far as where his position would be relative to obama's policy of allowing students who are in this country, who came in as children, they'd give them a visa to finish their education, and he has said he would support that. >> uh-huh. >> because frankly, again, the position of republicans has been such that, it's build a fence and throw everybody out. and you have a whole huge population there saying, hey, we're working hard in this country. we're contributing. we love it. our problem is that we have m e made, becoming an american citizen so difficult that for many of these people, it's hard to get, to get through that process. >> so, then, the latino vote, the immigrant vote, is that lost to the gop for a generation? >> no, i don't think so. because you have to remember also, you have a lot of very conservative members of the latino. a lot of catholics. a lot of people feel very strongly about the birth control
his very harsh position on immigration, a position that is quite anti-the interest of latinos in florida. >> in fact, the numbers are overwhelming for the president still. >> no one has been hurt in america by this president's economic policies more than hispanics. 15% unemployment. almost 50% of college graduates of hispanic origin can't get a job. jobs and the economy are the number one issue for hispanics, and frankly, they don't want four more years of this. >> would you concede that in the hispanic community, latino community, that there is a feeling that republicans are very harsh in their -- and that hurts the republican party? do you concede that? >> i think politics, frankly, between you and i, i think democrats have done a lot better job, and republicans have. this will be the last election that a republican will win the presidency unless generically speaking, the partyoes a better job -- >> but -- >> but mitt romney is doing a great job. mitt romney has gotten over 40% of hispanic vote in florida. that's plenty to win the state. he will hold on to that, and there wi
nationally. however, the same poll shows among latinos the president sup by an even bigger margin, 45 percentage points. which demographic is more important to who finally wins, ari? >> i don't know. i mean, i think these elections depend a lot on turnout. is somebody laughing? pundits are allowed to say they don't know when it's true, right? >> i think that's right. that's right. >> points for honesty. >> the main question that's implied in your premise is what is mobilization going to look like, and we have had unusual mobilizations recently in the last time obama was running. we had above average turnout among young people, among african-americans, and among latinos. if those trends continue, it's not just about the gap, it's about who turns out. and you couple that with the ground game this campaign has over 13 million people on an e-mail list, a direct way to mobilize supporters, and they have been doing it quite frankly, a lot longer than the challenger, and they may be able to turn out the very people who support them more, latinos and increasingly suburban women. >> okay. well
for months that african-americans and latinos have been very supportive of the president. and one indication with latinos we have seen in a recent poll is that enthusiasm has continued to go up. this is very important for the president because it translates that support into votes. but even more importantly, what we have seen is very high levels of enthusiasm in battleground states. so we see about 50 to 55% enthusiasm for the election. but when we look at nevada and florida, we're seeing upwards of 70%. on the flip side with women, we're seeing a bit more of uncertainty. in the past couple polls in the past two week, we have seen some bopping around. and in 2010 the republican party made gains with women in the midterm election. >> in terms of enthusiasm, one way we can look at that is to see how much endurance people are willing to invest in the process of voting. i want to show you a picture that our producer tweeted out today. people trying to vote in north houston. this was the overflow room for early voting in houston, texas. just a huge crowd of people turning out in order to stand in
in san jose is boycotting the bay area's largest latino grocery chain. mi pueblo is facing criticism over its decision to implement everify immigration screening in its application process. the grocery franchise claims it's receiving pressure from the department of homeland security to assess the legal status of its employees. according to the "l.a. times," a spokesman from homeland security says the agency does not force employers to use its everify program. >>> senator dianne feinstein is taking action against rising california gas prices. she is calling for a federal suppression into gas prices because she doesn't think -- a federal investigation into gas prices because she doesn't think they are related to supply and demand. california is paying the highest gas prices averaging $4.67 a gallon. as you can see, they are higher than that. yesterday, governor brown ordered state smog regulators to allow winter blend gas to be sold three weeks early. and remember, the cheapest gas in your neighborhood, you can find it at cbssf.com/gas. and then enter your zip code. >>> there's been an arre
